If there's anything left over I might consider optional 'stuff', but I honestly went for the m-sport because of the improved suspension and hence harder cornering.

If I remember rightly Marilyn lost the convoy and had to 'phone you to take over the lead of our section.

I did start to wonder when you tried to pass off that warehouse as a castle though

She didn't do too badly, I thought, considering she didn't have any idea where she was going!

I actually ignored where 'SatNavina' was telling me to go & decided to take 2 turns that ended up leading us to the industrial estate- '..what a b*tch...' I was thinking, as she directed us back towards Belvoir!
